Administration, F. A. (n.d.). Appendix a : Sea Launch System Components and System Integration, A. Overview. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Sea Launch is a new, innovative system for launching commercial satellites from a platform at sea. The Sea Launch program is an international joint venture owned by Boeing Commercial Space Company, RSC Energia, KB Yuzhnoye, and Kvaerner Maritime a.s. The system will utilize the proven Block DM-SL and Zenit rocket, manufactured by RSC Energia of Russia and KB Yuzhnoye of the Ukraine, to launch its satellite payloads (spacecraft) from equatorial locations in the Pacific Ocean. The rocket will be launched using two vessels: the assembly and command ship (ACS) and the launch platform (LP), which are provided by Kvaerner Maritime a.s of Norway. In port, the ACS will serve as the rocket assembly and integration facility and as the mission control center at the launch location. The LP is a converted, semi-submersible drilling platform. It will transport the integrated launch vehicle (ILV) to the launch location and will be used as a steady launch pad for the conduct of launch operations.
